Pitney Bowes Government Solutions has announced new document processing tools targeted specifically to federal agencies.
The product, Document Processing Solutions for Government (Government DPS), supports document processing for operations such as contracts management, Freedom of Information Act requests, benefits and grants processing, claims management and review, and other workflow-related tasks that require the digital conversion of older paper files, according to the company.
Jon Love, president of Pitney Bowes Government Solutions, said Government DPS also can decrease the amount of paper and storage space needed for files, reducing the government's carbon footprint.
Government DPS is made up of three bundles of Pitney Bowes products and services which can be used together or interchangeably:
- Inbound Document Processing, which includes the management of incoming documents by digitization and delivery into an agency's digital information structure
- Records and Information Management, which provides active records management, inactive records coordination, program design, implementation and support, and
- Best Site, a nationwide network of regional and national processing centers that provides transactional imaging services for backfile conversion and government blowback projects.
Government DPS also supports the consolidation of mail, print, imaging and records; increased digitization of inbound transactional mail; agency mail coming through multiple channels; and increased demand for national and enterprisewide document management solutions, Love said.
